Parent Information

Dear Parents & Carers,

When the children return to school, they will all be participating in Forest Schools sessions. All classes will go on Friday 12th March and Friday 19th March-There will be no forest school session on Friday 26th March, as we close at 1.10pm (Reception and KS1) and 1.20pm (KS2).

 

On these two Fridays the plan will be:

9.15am- Red Deer & Squirrels will go to Forest schools and come back to school for lunchtime.

12.30pm- Badgers & Foxes will go to Forest schools after lunch and be back at school for the end of the school day.

 

It is important that ALL children come to school in forest school clothes on both these days and that they are dressed appropriately, as we will be going no matter the weather. A waterproof jacket and water proof trousers are essential, as the only time a session will be cancelled is if it is deemed too windy or unbearably cold.

 

Here is an example of a kit list:

  •          Wellies/walking boots to change into (they need to also have shoes for the time in school). Please remember wellies can be quite slippery and children will need extra thick socks as they do not keep little feet particularly warm
  •          Long sleeved tops
  •          Long sleeves trousers
  •          Waterproof coat
  •          Waterproof trousers to go over their clothes or a waterproof all-in-one
  •          Hat/gloves/scarf (If cold)

The children will need to come to school dressed in their Forest clothes each Friday morning and bring a water bottle with them to school. They will have lunch at school as normal.

We look forward to getting all our children outdoors and spending quality time with them learning in the woods!

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mrs Maguire

Senior Teacher/Forest School Leader
